Suicide is considered to be the second leading cause of death for college students. That’s why the Counseling and Mental Health Center is organizing UT’s annual Suicide Prevention Week (September 24-28). This week is focused on raising awareness about suicide and engaging students, faculty and staff in suicide prevention. All are urged to “Be That One” to recognize when their student or friend is thinking about suicide and connect them with the help they need. Throughout the week, 23 campus departments and organizations, are sponsoring seven interactive programs as a call to action to prevent suicide within our campus community. For a full schedule of the week’s events and a complete list of counseling and mental health resources available to students, visit cmhc.utexas.edu
Free t-shirts and food at all events (while they last!). All events are free and open to the public.
